I can't believe I'm the first to try this. It is definitley a great comfort food. You could probably add even more potato if you want a heavier consistency, but this is very nice. Served with a salad and some fresh foccacia - delish! The only thing I did different is use a splash of Merlot in place of the sherry. Worked just fine. Thanks Mark!
I made this soup with four leeks instead of the onions because I was cooking for someone who claims they can't eat onions. It came out good but needed more leaks. Since I usually try to use what is on hand, I used 1/2&1/2 instead of cream but I felt it was rich tasting enough. It was a satisfying soup that did take the worries all away. Together with a grilled chicken breast sandwich I would repeat the meal all over again! To note: I had to briefly turn off the stove while making the soup due to a tornado warning. A December night to remember!
Excellent soup! I doubled the potatoes and used 1 cup half & half instead of half cup whipping cream. I also used white pepper, though I'm sure black pepper would do just fine. I didn't have any sherry on hand, either.
I enjoyed this very much. I scaled the recipe, but didn't want leftover potato, so used more potato than called for. Being an impatient person, the 25 minute saute time seemed rather long, but I managed for at least 20 minutes over very low heat, and that seemed to be okay. I had lovely thyme from a friend's garden, but used a little whole milk rather than cream this time. I'm sure it would have been even better with the cream, but was still delicious with milk. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.
Excellent! This was ever so slightly thin for our taste in a cream soup, but the flavour was excellent! I will thicken it up a bit for next time. Thanks for a keeper!
Excellent soup! I used 2 tblsps of flour after I sauted the onions & I doubled the potatos as suggested. Didn't have cream, but milk worked just fine. Will definately be adding this to my soup repetoire!!
This was a nice soup that we both enjoyed. I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of adding six cloves of garlic but next time will add more potatoes for a thicker consistency - it was a little thin for our tastes. Thanks for posting!
Delicious! Be careful about the chicken broth though, and definitely use LOW SODIUM. I only had regular broth on hand so I used that, and the result was way too salty. But still delicious!
Excellent soup, delicious with some nice crusty rolls. A half recipe made two bowls full, but I think it would have been better divided between three with more bread. Used a combination of vegetable and chicken broth, and a food processor instead of a blender. Yum, yum, yum!
Delicious, creamy onion soup. I used vegetable broth instead of chicken. Thanx for sharing this yummy easy recipe. I'll make this again.
